This was a little out of my normal reading element. I decided that I would give a YA book a try since I haven't read many for a while, but I only liked the book rather than fell in love with it. It's a cute story about a girl who has had a rather rough life and then is thrown into the world of magic. She never believed magic existed, but the evidence piles up in such a way that she cannot deny the existence. What I was not crazy about was that I felt like every character that Alyssa ran into just told her exactly what she wanted to know. Bad guys typically don't confess everything that freely and there were so many good guys willing to help her out without Alyssa being anyone special in the magical world at all. I suppose that the way it is written is probably great for a preteen, I just wanted a little more suspense.
